Our homegrown freight and logistics services have proven time and again that we’re more than just a shipping company. We are partners who will move mountains to ensure the success of our nation’s athletes on the global stage. This steadfast approach continues to define our integral role in the journey of New Zealand’s elite competitors. Discover the role Jacanna plays in empowering our greatest athletes. 

An Enduring Partnership Fuelling Olympic Aspirations

Having already worked across the Tokyo Olympic Games, Beijing Winter Olympic Games, and Birmingham Commonwealth Games, Jacanna is proud to be the official freight and logistics partner for the NZ Olympic Team. We provide essential international logistical knowledge and ensure seamless and reliable support for the world’s premier sporting event. 

This collaboration is not merely about transportation and logistics. It’s a commitment to ensuring our athletes have everything they need to bring home glory at the biggest sporting event on the planet. From spa pools to kitchen sinks, we deliver it all, even the most unexpected items, to keep the athletes comfortable and primed to perform at their peak. 

How We Handled the Pandemic’s Curveball

When COVID-19 hit during the Tokyo Olympics, we didn’t back down. Pandemic or not, our mission was to get the Kiwi athletes what they needed. We navigated through all the crazy restrictions and red tape to make sure two massive 40-foot shipping containers packed with essential gear and supplies made it to Tokyo. From Weet-Bix cartons to slushie machines, we handled every little detail to deliver whatever our team required. It was a huge logistical challenge, but we executed with precision because that’s what it takes to support champions – overcoming any obstacle, no matter how daunting. 

Navigating Logistics with Finesse

One of the biggest challenges we face is navigating the maze of international regulations and red tape, especially when moving food and specialised equipment across borders. But overcoming hurdles is what we do best. Our success lies in our expertise and unwavering commitment to getting the job done right, no matter what rules need to be followed. 

We handle everything from high-tech athletic gear to basic snacks and beverages, making sure not a single item gets left behind. Paying attention to the smallest details is crucial when supporting world-class athletes. Our finesse in complex logistics ensures the New Zealand team has zero distractions and can focus solely on peak performance. Whether coordinating sea freight or air freight shipments, we are committed to delivering excellence in every aspect of our service. 

Core Values Aligned

What makes our partnership with the New Zealand Olympic Team so special goes beyond logistics. We share their core values of excellence, determination, and a community spirit that resonates through every task. We’re not just freight forwarders; we’re part of something bigger. Contributing to the dreams and success of Kiwi athletes on the world stage is what drives us.  

Jacanna’s role in delivering the iconic New Zealand team kit to the athletes symbolises this partnership’s essence. It is about more than just shipping uniforms; it gives our champions a sense of pride and belonging as they represent our nation. We take that responsibility seriously because we’re in this together, players on the same team united by a relentless pursuit of excellence.  

Gearing Up for Paris 2024

While the world is buzzing with excitement about the upcoming Paris Olympic Games, we’re already hard at work. We’re deep in preparations, meticulously planning every detail to ensure New Zealand’s athletes have everything they need to compete at their absolute best in Paris. From sourcing specialised equipment to coordinating complex international shipments, we leave no stone unturned.  

This preparation isn’t just about moving boxes; it’s about carrying New Zealand’s hopes, dreams, and national pride with every item we deliver. Our tireless commitment matches the athletes’ relentless dedication, creating a powerful synergy that elevates New Zealand’s performance on the biggest stage. As logistics partners, we embrace the crucial supporting role that allows our champions to shine brightest when it matters most. 

Partnership Built on More than Logistics

At the end of the day, our partnership with the New Zealand Olympic Team goes far beyond business as usual. It’s a vivid example of how shared values, resilience, and an unwavering commitment to excellence can form an unstoppable force.  

As New Zealand celebrates the triumphs of its elite athletes, we take pride in being the unsung heroes who made those victories logistically possible. Through this partnership, we aim to continually set a new benchmark for what it means to be a world-class freight forwarding partner.
